Mid century hand turned abstract biomorphic bowl by Rude Osolnik. Made of mahogany featuring modernist design. His bowls and signature candlesticks are collector's items, and his pieces are in the permanent collections of major galleries around the world.
Considered to be one of the fathers of contemporary wood turning in America, Rude Osolnik is something of a folk hero. Working in Kentucky, he created robust forms from a variety of woods.
Osolnik is noted for his ability to use figures in the wood he laminates, creating a signature look that emerges only as the work is turned. Rude Osolnik moved to Kentucky in 1937 to run an industrial arts program at Berea College. For more than forty years he began work at two in the morning so that he could spend four hours at the lathe before a day of teaching.
Osolnik often gave small turned objects to family and friends, and his unique candlesticks, weed pots, and natural edge bowls quickly became recognized and sought after. He used simple proportions and clean lines to achieve what he described as a? Perfect balance between material, purpose, and contour. Good vintage condition, wear and distressing commensurate with age and use, scuffing / finish loss.
